I just had such a moving experience while doing the serious drills. I needed a partner and asked a woman I notice who was sitting alone. At first she hesitated, but then she agreed. We did a few and then she began to say, "I can't be with a man... their violence." She asked if I spoke French, I said not, but suggested she continue in French, anyway. We connected. She felt my appreciation and said, "I cannot believe I'm saying this to a man, and feeling the compassion." We both were moved to tears. She said, "This is a separation." I felt so happy. Her words touched me and I felt so grateful. We separated, but in a few minutes, she walked over to my table and gave me a long hug! I haven't felt this good about myself since I don't know when. I will never forget this experience.
